Adjectives and adverbs, grammar and writing errors, can hurt students’ writing.
Adjectives and adverbs can confuse students, but they need to know the difference. I made these activities to clarify the differences in adjectives and adverbs: confusing modifiers.
Overview of this adjective and adverb activity:
√ You have an editable presentation for students to review and to provide direct instruction.
√ Students will practice identification of adjectives and adverbs.
√ Students will then practice choosing an adjective or adverb in tricky situations.
This grammar lesson is a perfect connection to student writing!
You will receive the standard PDF versions as well as digital downloads via Google Drive.
I made this for middle school English students. I know that modifiers are taught in younger grades; however, many of my older students need a review of adjectives and adverbs.
This adjective or adverb bundle specifically includes:
☆ A grammar presentation with over 30 slides. They cover definitions, examples, and practice sentences for students.
☆ A student note taking packet. The packet follows the power point and has lots of room for taking notes.
☆ Forty practice sentences in worksheet format for students, perfect for scaffolding! Specifically:
– 10 sentences for students to find the predicate adjectives.
– 10 sentences where students must write the correct form – either the adjective or adverb. (bad/badly, good/well)
– An adjective/ adverb worksheet: 5 sentences ask students to identify adjectives, 5 sentences ask students to identify adverbs.
☆ ALL of the material in a digital format.
Helping students understand adjectives and adverbs will make more difficult grammar lessons easier!
